A number of hauliers and truck drivers from Wicklow are expected to take part in a protest against fuel prices on Wednesday, November 24.

The Irish Truckers and Haulage Association Against Fuel Prices say they plan to travel in convoy towards Dublin to highlight concerns about the rising cost of fuel. A  convoy from Wicklow and the south east of the country are expected to meet at the M11 exit 14 service station at Coynes Cross at 6 a.m. on the day then depart at  6.45 a.m. for Dublin.

Commuters could face delays as the convoy of commercial vehicles makes its way towards Dublin.

The group, which is not affiliated with the Irish Road Haulage Association, said it wants to hold a protest to highlight concerns about the rising cost of petrol and diesel.
